How Full Each Premier League Stadium Has Been This Season

How Full Each Premier League Stadium Has Been This Season

West Ham United's London Stadium is the most full ground in the Premier League this evening according to a study, with Newcastle United's St James' Park right at the opposite end of the table.

TransferMarkt have collated all the important data, which shows that the London Stadium has a capacity percentage of 99.9% after totalling an average attendance of 59,916 this campaign.


Chelsea, Leicester and Arsenal are joint second on 99.3%, with Norwich in fifth spot after filling 99.2% of their stadium.

Manchester City are regularly ridiculed with the 'Emptihad' jokes from rival fans about their attendances but the numbers here tell a completely different story.

City are in eighth, ahead of 9th placed Liverpool and 12th placed Manchester United, having averaged 54,386 as a home crowd this term - giving them a capacity percentage of 98.9%.


At the very bottom of the pile is Newcastle but it's not so much of a surprise given the supporters' well-documented resentment towards owner Mike Ashley.

A number of boycotts has resulted in an average attendance of 47,166 - around 5,000 short of the full capacity.

Southampton and Burnley make up the bottom three as far as capacity percentages go, with both on 91.5% from their home games in 2019/120.
